hello to all aw members,

even do i have a 13 year old generation 1 duet washer with matching generation 1 duet dryer i do miss the days where washers where simpler that is to just set the timer dial to selected cycle and wash time and let the washer do every thing and where water tempature for wash water was the right selected tempatures and not dumb down wash rinse temp like washers of today credit to philr who pic i am using that i save on my pc as exemple this type of timer dial was easy to read and would not rely on fancy electronics to decide the wash rinse temp everything was set including water level by human hand

46 would be nice to go back to since I am the doorsteps to Medicare. My 1984 Maytags are dial control and still work just fine as does my 1995 Whirlpool dial dishwasher and their is no electronic board in my Whirlpool gas range. Although I have a 1977 Whirlpool Mark Series microwave that is computer touch controlled. Guess they built that one right. I'll keep my old stuff going as long as I can. When I get real nostalgic, I play with my '48 Kenmore wringer.

So far

I ain't missing much..
I've got a washboard, a wringer washer, and a TL kenmore with a mechanical timer.
And I'm keeping all of them. (as long as I can get parts, and can keep them running)
I get hot water when I want it, and a warm deep rinse when I want it.
So I'm happy.
